Telefonica Peru cuts carbon emissions by a third in 2019

Monday 9 March 2020 | 12:08 CET | News
Telefonica Peru announced that it reduced carbon emissions by 33 percent in 2019 thanks to its growing use of renewable energy. The company said it used over 79 million kWh of conventional renewable electricity from Statkraft Peru, preventing the emission of some 26,838 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, as confirmed by Aenor, which granted Telefonica a guarantee of origin of renewable energy from water sources. Statkraft Peru specialises in the production of clean and renewable energy via 9 hydroelectric plants located throughout Peru.
